Angular Rate Sensing with GyroWheel Using Genetic Algorithm Optimized Neural Networks
AbstractGyroWheel is an integrated device that can provide three-axis control torques and two-axis angular rate sensing for small spacecrafts. Large tilt angle of its rotor and de-tuned spin rate lead to a complex and non-linear dynamics as well as difficulties in measuring angular rates. In this paper, the problem of angular rate sensing with the GyroWheel is investigated. Firstly, a simplified rate sensing equation is introduced, and the error characteristics of the method are analyzed. According to the analysis results, a rate sensing principle based on torque balance theory is developed, and a practical way to estimate the angular rates within the whole operating range of GyroWheel is provided by using explicit genetic algorithm optimized neural networks. The angular rates can be determined by the measurable values of the GyroWheel (including tilt angles, spin rate and torque coil currents), the weights and the biases of the neural networks. Finally, the simulation results are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed angular rate sensing method with GyroWheel. View Full-Text
